wait wait guys. It is still waaay too early to start making predictions by declaring the kid a champion. Yes MM has talent and starting to look very impressive. This is just practice, all this means absolute squat until race day. He may even win the first race. There is just way too much talent out there in the field. Yamaha will level the playing field really soon to make things even more interesting.

Always maintained that if you are exceptional on a small less powerful bike you can very quickly adapt to a larger bike, regardless of your physical size. There arent many examples of really quick riders having come from small capacity machines who havent been fast on the large machines. Ok Aoyama perhaps but not many. Robert, Uncini, Biaggi, Capirosi, Pedrosa. All jockeys and all quick on big uns.

Tetley, not sure about Marquez's smile!! He's one of these riders that never acknowledges the camera, even when it is shoved a couple of inches off his face! I have never seen him look into the camera, smile ,wave and do anything very friendly at all!!! His entourage will probably say that is because he is focussed!! Cocky is more like!!

This season is to become the tightest ever contested season in a long time with four front riders and practically no one can be written off easily away from title fight, title fight won't get down to only between two that sooner this time like in most other previous seasons, no out right favourites this time, no one will run away with title that easily...

JL will DP resume their fight for title from where they left last season,,

marc is only improving everyday and can be a real threat for title fight ,

only god knows what the old man still has in him and can surprise all with some stunners, if he can get himself and his bike fit and ready to go then the other 3 better get ready for some season full of nightmares,, I mean sharing your quota of topping the time sheets all weekends only to lose it to Rossi on race day,,

But I am almost sure when when Vale retires, motogp would have got another valentino Rossi in name of Marc to run the show for next 10 years like vale did it betwe

Unfortunately MM , like Stoner, will find out that it isn't the fastest rider or even the best racer that wins the title. Unfortunately now its all about managing fuel and rear tyre life and the number of laps on each engine. No wonder Stoner walked away .

I am begining to think that this Kid really might win the title at his first attempt!
Jorge,you have your work cut out mate.Your consistancy will have to be your biggest weapon against this little demon!
He means business.

So let me get this straight, a rookie is once again allowed to race a top bike, and have a chance at winning before being forced to race for 5th place? Must be great motivation. If only Bradl, Spies, Cal were allotted this option....

Maybe more manufacturers would have stayed?

Maybe the aliens would have been at least challenged at a few more rounds?

Not taking away from MM, this kid is ripping it up! Just stating i could see racers becoming less enthused knowing there was NO way they could win a race their rookie year.
